Jane Kellahan

Jane Kellahan is an internationally exhibited and award winning artist with 20 years experience.

In 2016 July, Jane has been selected to exhibit her work at the Museo Internazionale Italia Arte in Turin, Italy. In 2015 Jane received a special mention at the London Art Biennale. As New Zealand's sole representative, she was one of 120 international artists to exhibit at the prestigious event.

In 2011 Jane received third place in the Leonardo Prize at the Biennale of Chianciano, Italy. That same year she was a finalist and in 2009, Jane won the renowned Cricket Art Prize in Australia with her work, 'White Wickets.'

She exhibited at the 2005 Florence Biennale in Italy. Her work was featured in Denis Robinson's book, 'New Zealand's Favourite Artists' and was also selected by the Royal Academy of Arts, London in 2000.

Jane works with sensuous oils to create thought-provoking works, crafted onto canvas, wood, and paper. Japanese tissue mixed with various mediums including silver and gold leaf, are layered with oils, rubbed down and painted over. These organic textures produce rich paintings with resonant depth, and imbued with light and potency.
